Confronting Contemporary Christian Music
by H. T. Spence

A plain account of Contemporary Christian Music, its history, philosophy, and future; highly researched, with convincing evidence.

The title of the book, Confronting Christian Contemporary Music, may seem somewhat forthright. But we are living in a time when this music has the manner of Goliath, the uncircumcised Philistine, coming before the Camp of God. As young David of old, the giant CCM must be confronted with the stones from the brook of God's Word. It is not only a philosophical battle; it is a spiritual one. May God dispel the fear and timidity among His people, so that they may rise up and confront this carnal, uncircumcised music invading our churches, for it is bold in its sounds and unseparated in its message.

------------------------

Contemporary Christian music—it is the innovation of the hour in our age of church history. It has taken the Bible-believing church by storm. When a fundamental church adopts CCM as its musical style, it always moves into the new evangelical orbit. Where CCM comes, new evangelism follows, as certainly as the tail follows the dog. Reverent worship disappears, sound doctrine declines, and holy living is despised. Why is it so? This volume will give you the answer.

When I began to read the manuscript, I was finishing a twenty-two-week journey through the Book of Revelation in my preaching. In a ministry of forty-five years, this was my fourth detailed exposition of that Book. The realities of the Anti-Christ's coming kingdom, the evil spiritual Babylon of chapter 17, and the worldly Babylon of chapter 18 were certainly clearer than they were forty-five years ago. It is obvious that we are living in that age where world history is rushing to the conclusion of which John wrote. I believe that Dr. Spence has insight of the Lord in relating rock music to Revelation.

My father always said, "God's answer in a crisis is usually a man." He illustrated that truth with men like Moses, Elijah, and Paul. Dr. Spence points out that Satan has counterfeited this principle in his demonic enterprise. Satan has his men for the age just as God does. This is a truth which few have seen. Dr. Spence demonstrates the truth that the rock musicians of our age are a part of Satan's plan for attacking our culture, destroying logic, and preparing the world to accept the Anti-Christ.

Most of us have read a number of books on rock music. They present the raunchy history of a depraved musical form. Dr. Spence relates the history of rock music in several chapters. However, his point is not to show how bad it is, but to demonstrate how the development of this music has evolved to include all of the necessary themes to make it the consort of the one world church, the end-time opposition to God, and the worship of a man.

Yes, this is another book on contemporary music. But, it is not the same as most of the others. It takes its time in getting to the point by laying a biblical foundation and then tracing the extensive genealogy of CCM. It identifies the major writers and performers in the field. It names names. When the whole subject is before you, it looks at the problem through scriptural and eschatological eyes. In so doing it will open your eyes to a present danger which desires to claim your church.
